Yesterday there was an impromptu garage sale down in the community room. Ruth and a couple other ladies decided to sort out the storage room and price things for the Fall Garage Sale coming up. I went down to see if the washing machines were empty and found them all there selling stuff and putting price stickers on everything. I got a little metal three shelf metal cart on wheels about two and a half feet tall for $1.50, a wooden side table that holds magazines or whatever for $2.00. It is 17" x 18" x 8" and the top swivels. It looks like a homemade job. The wood is just a lighter shade than my desk and it fits perfect beside my recliner chair. It is just what I have been looking for. Cute. Also a two cup+ metal saucepan, the old blue w/white speckles, like the roasting pans, for .75 . The metal shelf needs a good scrubbing. I think most of the stuff belonged the previous resident. I also got a bottle of glue and a mineature German beer stein. I spent a total of $5.50. Big spender. Then I came home and had dinner and went back down and helped box everything up and back into the storage room. They sold $150 in just a couple of hours to residents and caregivers.
The sun is out but it isn.t going to be much over 70.
